Exploring one of the most economically powerful metropolitan areas in Europe, this guide delves into North Rhine-Westphalia, a German region that boasts a diversity of landscapes, major cultural sites, and a significant history. Roaming the cities of Xanten, Bonn, and Cologne, the survey also considers countless castles, palaces, and sacred buildings, such as the cathedrals in Paderborn, Altenburg, and the mighty edifice in Cologne, bearing witness to an impressive past. Numerous works of art and artifacts, including everything from archaeological finds and contemporary art to chocolate, are detailed throughout nearly 700 museums in the state.
